She was preceded in death by her husband Ernest Lee Robinette; daughter Cathy Gene Smith; Sons: Hadsol Junior Prater and Ricky Lee Prater.

Oma was a one-of a kind wife, mother, grandmother “mawmaw,” and great grandmother. She had a family tree that extended beyond her own blood relatives. She never did meet a stranger.

Oma will be missed more than her family and friends could possible express with words. We appreciate all the thoughts and prayers, and would like to extend our deepest love and gratitude.
